{{helpme}} Please excuse my ignorance/newbiness to Wikipedia. Images taken by ourselves were tagged for removal and I am unsure how to/if tagging them correctly. They are under "Edan Everly". Can I bother you for your help when you get a chance? I hope I can even find my way back to THIS page!  :) Thank you for your time!! - Treester (email address removed)

If they are yours, you can use the upload wizard and then determine a licensing tag. When on the upload page, in the description box, note you are the author and it is not copyrighted. Then under the licensing drop-down box, select "You created this yourself, it is all your own work and release it into the public domain". That way the orphan bots don't delete your images with no detail. Otherwise, please ask at the media upload questions page so someone that is experienced in that area may help you.

Help with eddie woods photographs required[edit]

Hello. Not sure if this is the right place to leave a note, so sorry if not.

I have two photographs I would like to use in the Wiki page about of Eddie Woods which have been deleted from Wiki Commons (correctly as I now realise), but I am not sure if they come under 'Fair Use' either, so not sure how they can be used. Details about the deletion are at the 'talk' page for 'Woodstock' (who is the subject Eddie Woods). I have also asked Polarlys, who has left a useful comment, for help. The problem is one photo was taken in 1963 of the subject by someone unknown. The subject owns the only known copy but was not the creator. The second photo was taken of the subject under his direction using his camara and film and he owns the original negative. I have statements (which I can supply) from the subject covering the first photo, and from the creator of the second photo (who is not the owner), and the owner, releasing them for use on wikipedia. Sorry, I must be missing something obvious, but after a lot of reading I have gone 'guideline blind'; I am failing to find any thing that covers either of these situations in any of the guidelines. Thanks for any help you can give. Chrischmoo

Pictures for articles[edit]

I am actually looking for both: How to insert pictures in articles and at the same time not violating any copyrights. Regards.Dragonbite 15:15, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

its obvious[edit]

I am Avram Glazer, can't you see by my username??? hence the "he's me". However, I will stop disrupting articles. The article on me though lacks sources and references. Can some be added? Avram Glazer 17:05, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for your help, and the examples on the Meshuggah and Burzum images, I have such a feeling of clarity now :) There's a bunch more but I can take care of them. Thanks again! MrHate 01:48, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


We "talked" before about Image:SPMA3.png which I just marked as non-free and did all the junk associated with this. There are several other images uploaded by the same user that are of questionable copyright (he appeared to think that on US Government website = free). There are about 100, do you think I might be able to find some people interested in going through them, or am I stuck trying this on my own. Pdbailey 12:47, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Great, thanks for the help. I've been using the list provided by the user User:Tlmclain#Image_Contributions. I went through 10 or so before and he rarely finds a source for the PD claim (again, just that it was on a USG website), so I think adding that is a good thing to do and allows for helping others who might question the copyright of the material. But in some cases the source is very good and has a "usage notice" below it that links to a page that clearly states the image is in the PD. Because of this, I made a page User:Pdbailey/Chk_Images with obvious categories. Thanks for any help you provide. Pdbailey 13:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Wow, thanks a million for the organization! Pdbailey 01:24, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Just did some more work (BTW, again, your organization of the page has helped out a lot). I have an issue, what to do about images that appear on USG servers without copyright notices of any kind. I've been listing them separately for now as checked. You can click through some if you like. Also, when contacting webmasters, is there a form letter for me to send? So far I've just emailed one and I just asked if the image was copyright and if they were in the PD since they have no note regarding licenses on their website. Pdbailey 03:03, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Your "fair use rationale" statements[edit]

Hey, Strangerer... I'm just curious, a lot of images that I've recently uploaded and added Fair Use claims to were challenged. However, on most of my images, you seem to have come behind them and added a section titled Fair use rationale beneath it that appears to say about the same thing my fair use claim did.

Can you help me understand how the first one was insufficient, or worded/titled wrong? A lot of my recent projects have been gathering artwork for artist's discographies, so there's a lot of work I'm trying to protect! Souldier77 19:59, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey, thanks. No offense taken. As a matter of fact, a slew of images I had given rationale for were deleted, so I guess I need to ignore that "do not delete this" section of the tag until the system's a bit more perfect. ;-) Souldier77 20:12, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, Image:AllThatINeed.jpg was the first image to get tagged, and thereby the first casualty. I can re-upload it though. ;-) Souldier77 20:26, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
I'm fairly certain of which photos got deleted, but assuming it was a mistake, I've just gotten about the business of re-uploading them and hoping no one makes a big stink about my audacity. Souldier77 21:36, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the fair use guff to Image:Cabcharge.gif‎..did not get around to that one as yet. --Mikecraig 22:52, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Courier (Quarterly)[edit]

Thank you for extending the rationale for the image. I find the whole system of classification complex. Is there a special class for images for which the copyright owners have given permission for their use in Wiki? A number of images I have saved fall into this category.

DonJay 03:10, 7 June 2007 (UTC)


I am still sort of new to Wiki and I see you making picture edits adding fair use rationale using WP:AWB, how is that done?--Migospia 06:19, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

15 minute block[edit]

Adding the same fair use rationale to several hundred images is not going to change the problem.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:00, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

  • I really don't know what else I could say in the rationale for album cover images. --Strangerer (Talk) 07:01, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
    • You were adding the same one to each image's page. That is not the right thing. While the reasoning is the same, there is no mention of the page it is being used on, or other items on WP:FURG. Please do not continue using AWB. However, please go back and alter the fair use rationales you used, manually.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:04, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:Riya Calendar.jpg[edit]

Please, let me know if the use and info, as well as the article inclusions are alright or not. I am confidant that the rationale and the use can be enhanced anough to keep its use fair. If you think let me know that, too. Respond to my talk page. Thanks for your attention. Cheers. Aditya Kabir 16:38, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Anderson House (St. John's) photos[edit]

Hi, Thanks for leaving a message on Commons concerning these photos. I had uploaded 4 or 5 photos of Anderson House. These are photos I had taken myself and have released all rights to these. Just a note stating I had taken them is sufficient for me. I thought I had uploaded the files correctly and ticked the appropriate boxes for establishing ownership. Now that they are there, I have no idea how to get them out of delete purgatory, as the instructions are convoluted and complicated. If the whole process could be streamlined in such a way that would allow people like myself to simply upload photos and link them to appropriate articles, I would be ecstatic. I could be blamed for not reading the instructions on how to upload images, I tried by gave up when the technical jargon when on-and-on. I went ahead anyhow and hoped that I would get it right, by alas... no such luck. If you could help me apply the right tags to the photos, I would be very much thankful. --HJKeats 17:05, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Your VandalProof Application[edit]

Thank you for your interest in VandalProof, Strangerer. As you may know, VP is a very powerful program, and in fact the just released 1.3 version has even more power. Because of this we must uphold strict protocols before approving a new applicant. Regretfully, I have chosen to decline your application at this time. The reason for this is that you were recently blocked for abusing a similar program.

Please note it is nothing personal by any means, and we certainly welcome you to apply again soon. Thank again for your interest in VandalProof. Daniel 05:24, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
